Black Bean Dip


2 tbs neutral oil ( canola, vegetable or grapeseed )
½ cup diced onion
1 clove minced garlic
1 serrano pepper, seeded and diced
1 tbs salt
1 tbs cumin
2 small cans black beans drained
and rinsed
2 tbs tomato paste
½ cup water
1 tbs nutritional yeast
1 lime


Heat a heavy bottom pan over medium high heat. Cut the lime in half and place the cut side down into the pan. Let the lime get black and burnt. This will help the dip develop a deeper flavor. Scrape the lime off the bottom of the pan and add the oil followed by the onion, garlic and Serrano pepper. Cook while stirring until soft. Add the tomato paste and continue to stir until the tomato paste has developed a dark color. Add the water and stir together. Add the remaining ingredients and bring to a simmer. Turn the pot to low and cook stirring occasionally until the sauce becomes very thick. Keep warm or reheat on low covered stirring occasionally until heated through.
